SS503 Statistical Process Control (SPC)

Certificate Track: Six Sigma

This 2-day course builds on the concepts from the “Intro to Statiscal Methods” class. It takes participants to next level to enable them to account for differences in the nature of processes in developing the best methods for managing them for control and continuous improvement.

Participants will leave with the knowledge and skills to recognize the treatment diverse process situations require to effectively control and manage them. They will learn about means (Xbar) charts for variable data and about P, nP, C and U charts for attribute data and powerful exponentially weighted moving averages (EWMA) charts for both. They will also learn how to conduct studies to assess the capability of a process to meet requirements for attribute data like the number of defects (for manufacturing processes) or errors (for administrative or service processes) and the proportion defective (for manufacturing processes) or acceptable (for administrative or service processes.)Register Now button
